May times you need to add namespaces to your application, here I sharing how you can add “System.ServiceProcess” required to incorporate windows services to your application.

Follow the below steps add references:
1) Right click on solution explore and click on add reff
Add Reference
2( go to Assembly => Framework and look for “System.ServiceProcess” and enable it.
enable_Service_Process
Click OK to enable it.

3) Now add belowline at the top:

using System.ServiceProcess;

4) Add the code below:

ServiceController svcController = new ServiceController("Test Windows Service");

if (svcController != null)
{
    try
    {
        //svcController.Stop();
        //svcController.WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus.Stopped, TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10));
        svcController.Start();
    }
    catch
    {
    }
}
